5:14am
ukraine. you can find more details at the bottom side street chain dot com. my name is ann and kelantan which is really good bye. thank you to try out. it's wonderful to be back at the crisis media center. let me say at the top how proud i am of our affiliation with the center but also how important is that the center has developed a way that's as a voice for authoritative information on engaging with all of ukraine ukrainian symbolic language this is especially with this one is particularly important i felt like it it's been a couple of weeks since i've been here all that the senate so i thought i could do was offer some quick opening remarks of the few issues on my mind this afternoon and then take questions whatever direction would be most useful to everybody. let me start with a couple of quick remarks about the issues of the day. i just know how
5:15am
truly disgusted i was armed by the events yesterday internet's of the really brutal attacks the violent attacks on women and children and elderly people are the folks who become our internet's to demonstrate in favor of national unity of in favor of a democratic future for ukraine. i think it's quite telling that so many people were prepared to put it on the law and the way they did. in yesterday's march and i think it's quite sad that you had this brutal violent attack on by people who were clearly there with the goal of causing mayhem on let me also say i'm a couple of minutes late today because i'm coming from a meeting with the oic secretary general mr garnett who was here along with to grow them in the representative of the osce chairman in office and we're adding another in what has been for the past
5:16am
two weeks or so daily meetings with the ukrainian government on the implementation of the junior framework for de escalation of the crisis in ukraine. on this has been for us on a productive channel four in gauging on these issues and in particular to hear from the ukrainian government. the progress that we see in their implementation of the geneva forever i was pleased and honored yesterday to join russian european arm colleagues as well as foreign minister to shoot said. um and that they're acting there keep on as we walked through kids got to see the progress that has been made on in the renovation of that building exciting front of it close for renovations are with the foreign to it being reopened after the twenty fifth with a democratically elected there but clearly in fulfilment of
5:17am
god the goal of that geneva sets out for the release of all administrative buildings we hope very much. that's the armed forces in eastern ukraine. we see is qualitatively different but that those forces will take similar action and in the nearest future. we're encouraged by what we see happening in terms of the government's progress on a broad amnesty law which understandings been abated in the run this afternoon. we also welcome the further progress that the government is making in its development of a framework for constitutional reform. i've developed devolution of local authority greater local responsibility on issues of governance and budgets in particular. all of these steps to represent to our point of the substantial progress on that key has made it with elements of the geneva objectives. we regret the fact of russia has not yet been able to exercise pressure on to encourage
5:18am
similar action in the east where obviously the situation continues to deteriorate including today's reporting of seizure of the administrative building in the cards maybe to last us for points in the week and we can open up to questions. for smaller side note in my opening remarks i think for the united states right now are indeed i think for the people of ukraine nothing is more important at this moment the national unity. this is the time of when the country needs to pull together. in the face of an outside threat in the face the challenges that have been created. we appreciate the signals that have come from political leaders across the spectrum in support of that objective. um i would share one anecdote of vice president biden's visit last week. for me one of the most encouraging aspect of the visit was his meeting with the leaders where he met with a broad range of
5:19am
political leaders across the spectrum. several presidential candidates several notable candidates but the one message that every single one of the political leaders and su one way or another was committed to national unity the commitment to the idea of ukrainian territorial integrity ukraine ukrainian unity of any ukraine which moves forward on within its current within its current constitutional boundaries are finally i just a note. we are now chorus less than four weeks out from presidential elections are arguably the most important election in the history of ukraine the united states is strongly committed to the success of the selections of all i have joined by european counterpart the best attendance key for several conversations with the election commission the united states or agency for international development is supporting the conduct of elections. through our partnership with ipc international federation for
5:20am
election systems. we also expect in addition to the very large observer mission that the osce will be deploying in a deep as our deployed here to ukraine on we will expect large delegations from our political party institutes from the national democratic institute from the international republican institute. i think this is a signal to the ukrainian people are that they will enjoy strong engagement strong support from the international community certainly from the united states as they move towards is critically important elections for the united states as i've said before deciding the most important thing is that this election be free and fair to reflect the will of the ukrainian people are traces of the ukrainian people any help to continue the process of recapturing ukraine's democracy. they began god began on february february twenty first. so maybe with those opening remarks let me
5:21am
turn it over to questions and we can take their conversation whatever direction would be useful to you. somehow. questions from the east. i forgot half of them is the most simple brown from al jazeera english tutor questions as to what seems to be a distinction emphasis or just difference in emphasis between the us. pressure from the unions sanctions against russia. i wondered what you feel from the american point of view with the european union is going far enough. on second of all in relation to events that are happening in the east there is grave concern now that the ukrainian police. we had it in a press briefing just to produce ago are simply incapable or unwilling to do that you all on the east mesa to be slipping away from
5:22am
the administration kiev. what concerns you have in relation to its banks while the first question let me say obviously we've court made it very closely with our european partners throughout this exercise throughout are engaged. i'm going to be tactical differences you see that as a manifestation of the different legal frameworks in which our legal systems in which our sinks in regimes unfold on but i don't see a great deal of daylight between brussels and washington on these questions in fact we have the same strategic objective arm and i think united states has been clear that. objective of the sanctions is not sanctions for their own sick sick but sanctions to encourage a change and pack from step to encourage russia to to take the diplomatic off to to take the diplomatic course we try to chart out of that certain goals europe shares. so while i think you may see occasional differences and in implementation on the practical than the practical approaches i
5:23am
think exactly the same at this point has been careful accordance with going forward the question of the security situation on the dc a couple of things obviously we are watching developments in these very closely. we have worked in the past and we continue to work. scorsese's programs with ukrainian security institutions. we welcome the very prudent approach that the ukrainian government has taken to mention that the security challenges created by the separatism in the east in the outside support for separatists in its. i think it's it's worth noting that the government has taken an extremely prudent approach of making clear for instance install the odds that their intention is not to buy lovely clear the city. but to uphold ukrainian law and to try it too. to cordon
5:24am
the stability as best they can. and we continue to work closely with ukrainian security counterparts in support of that objective. we certainly support the actions that ukraine is taking to uphold ukrainian law. i think of. as concerned. that is as we are about these activities i think it's worth remembering when talking about relatively small groups of people are often led by an armed echelon and i haven't seen the teacher up reports the actor who haunts this afternoon benefits from the usual template. the guys with guns and book lovers who are sort of the leading edge who were then followed by some of these local groups who then set up set up shop but this is still relatively isolated i were talking about on small plots of instability in an environment where all the polling data suggests that the vast majority of the people of the dog box persephone was to remain as part of an integrated ukraine
5:25am
and want to see their economic and other concerns addressed through the purposes and certainly not survive and said that it probably i would let me just emphasize as i sit in my opening remarks i see no sympathy at all for the kind of outrageous parts. that was inflicted on these demonstrators in the nets yesterday and i think that says alot about what we're dealing with the sport were dealing with people with wheat knives and baseball hats chasing after him and beating of elderly people women children on there's no place for that. there's no place for that and democracy in some. the initial news arms to mr stokes on the show's final cleaning of the creamy on the look of the church or its own within fifteen days there should inform the relevant executive body. the most suitable i'm kinda sick of this position as minister for premium and
5:26am
would shoot ukraine government do in order to support the ukrainian citizens in the crimea on a point except to take these russians that is an activity called they can feel that the government support. those are all we all really good questions mostly questions to be answered by the ukrainian government obviously for purposes of the united states we do not recognize the illegal occupation and annexation of crime yet without regard to recognize the annexation. so we recognize the requirements under ukrainian law to fund a legal regime to govern issues of taxes and business transactions that need to continue. but i think how to shape those shape those policies of those are questions to be determined entirely by the ukrainian government with with no really constructive input that i can provide from the outset. i will say that united states stands ready to go to work with ukraine to offer ukraine are legal advice as i know many other
5:27am
governments have offered as well as ukrainian government begins to develop its legal strategy for dealing with the invasion the illegal occupation and annexation of crimea. they're obviously been a novel legal issues are raised on in the business fear and the spirit of international law. on that obviously we stand ready to be helpful to ukraine to the extent they choose to use the legal mechanisms that they have available to address those issues. he's the boss of the police and indonesian deval the look and who look and then go lament and more cost to do in a concert goer month again today is. mini gift. listen in to get sixteen eighteen you can see in the room all told the court went on and do
5:28am
new to you to your needs what was to go dormant in short the time. chris didn't want to add to that thank you for the question is at one under vine. these are decisions that the government of ukraine needs to make the international community united states cannot make these decisions we appreciate very much. the approach that the ukrainian government has pursued. in particular i think we would endorse the strategy that the prime minister yeltsin you can sprout of attacking this as both a security problem but also a political problem. we see the outreach to eastern oval as the prime minister and his team having kitchen is being very important we welcome the steps that the prime minister has taken with this process of constitutional reform intended to address the grievances that people in eastern ukraine had expressed intended to identify a formula to deepen democracy to enhance prospects for
5:29am
economic growth clearly there's a security dimension to these issues and we will never question the ukrainian government's rights the decision to uphold its own laws including through through the enforcement mechanisms. we also acknowledge and happen to agree with. the judgment the prime minister has made ultimately if ukraine is to insulate itself against the kind of instability that is being prevented from outside it is coming across with these political tourists in a phrase that nobody heard until two months ago. i'm a bit of ukraine is to insulate itself against these kind of sound effects. it will need to continue the process of democratization deepening democracy deepening local authority are deepening economic authority at the lowest level in order to give people a sense of ownership but a sense of ownership. as part of it as
5:30am
part of a unified ukraine and that's the most important principle. moo. this program is brought you why. from norway's main stream whose work is wise. the group explore one thousand miles of norwegian coastal the report called encounters and access to wilkinson
